  1. Clogged pilot jet is likely cause, take carb bowl off thoroughly clean, etc. I would first check to see where your air mixture screw is at. How many turns out from fully seated?
  2. No problem Steve, that's what we are all here for...to help each other out. At least you've properly documented it with the dealer if something goes wrong later.
  3. Here is a video of my '17 going through gears. Definitely no grinding from 4th to 5th. A semi loud "clank" but that is it. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1l7L3j3j3Iw0kz9tCxEX3zsaUT62tcWSb/view?usp=sharing
  4. Maybe try getting video or sound of the gear change? Next time I have my '17 out I'll try to record mine shifting from 4th to 5th. As others state, mine is "loud" noise but I don't think it is a grinding noise.
  5. Whatever adhesive you use, yes I would take the fitting out and clean everything. Then apply it and let it sit overnight before you add fuel.
  6. I had same issue with mine, dealer suggested and I have used TWICE now 3M windshield adhesive (black colored). Just get the area totally clean and free from gas/oil like the prior person said. https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-us/all-3m-products/~/3M-Auto-Glass-Urethane-Windshield-Adhesive/?N=5002385+3293242009&rt=rud
  7. Thanks for the follow up and pics Zippy. I'm going to try using the GG outer seals next time I replace my bearings then, should help keep some moisture out.
  8. I use the same bearings but don't reuse the old "seals". Don't the bearings have seals built in? How would you fit in the old outer seals? Thanks just trying to learn.
  9. Let me check around my garage and see. Might still have it somewhere.....
  10. One other idea, try calling Jim Snell. He had a spare dampening rod he sold me for cheap after I stupidly leaned the fork on it's side (doing an fork oil change) and the brass piece was resting against a box. It was a little bent so I decided to replace it.
  11. I heard the same thing about Marzocchi discontinuing parts, but what I don't understand is that new Scorpa's (non factory version) come with Marzocchi's? So shouldn't the Scorpa parts dealers be able to order replacement fork parts? ....wait a second, just read your screen name Luke what's up buddy!!! I think there is a Marzocchi dealer in Scotts Valley but if I recall correctly I called them a few years ago about buying sanchion bushings and they said they only sell mountain bike forks.

    bleeding back brake

    I feel your pain, can be a difficult and frustrating task. Here are some suggestions based on what I wrote down last time I had trouble bleeding the rear on my 2010. -Try cracking open the banjo bolt open (while you are holding the pedal down). -Try pushing in pistons all the way, blocking them from extending out by inserting old pads or wood shins, then try bleeding -Try "reverse" bleeding using syringe. Do this BOTH from the caliper bleed nipple and at the master cylinder. -Put rear end up on tail gate, used screw driver to pump Master Cylinder Hope this helps!
  13. Take clutch cover off and look closely at the teeth on the primary gear and those on the clutch basket. You can get some grit in there or wear on the teeth and it can result in a sound like that. Any fuzz/metal on the drain plug magnet?
  14. Thanks for posting, may give this a shot!
  15. Do you have any pics of the modification? I would be interested to see what you came up with. I've been meaning to at least seal the airbox better on my '17 Agree with On It however wouldn't it be beneficial to limit the amount of dust entering the airbox as it in turn would be less dirty air for the filter to well...filter?
